Abstract

Chest pain can occur after cardiac device lead placement through various mechanisms. Commonly, this is secondary to perforation. We present four cases of unusual chest pain syndromes secondary to device leads with normal function and position without evidence of typical complications. The possible etiologies and management considerations for these cases are discussed.
